New year, new job…

New year, new job…

For many a new year signals a significant milestone, a fresh start where promises are made which are often long forgotten by mid-January as Gyms go back to being empty and the Tesco special of 24 Mars bars for £3 again becomes irresistible. Well we don’t like that approach one bit!

Your life is the most valuable thing you have, and I am disappointed every day to hear people moaning and complaining about their jobs. Did you know that 70% of the UK population are unhappy with their jobs with over 20% stating that they despise their jobs. Wow! So statistically speaking 7 of every 10 readers of this blog are unhappy with their job situation (unless we only attract happy readers) and even if you are happy maybe you know someone who needs to get their backside in to gear and apply for a happy role in a positive work environment at Bid and Research Development. We are actively seeking the greatest human beings available.

We want winners-

Winners Win and Losers Lose

that’s a fact! we offer you the opportunity to change lives and bath in the glory that is multi million-pound contract wins providing our clients with security and income, keeping people in jobs and making a real difference. It really is a wonderful thing.

We have three roles up for grabs based in Teesside:

  • Junior Bid Writer– an entry level position, ideal for someone who has the raw skills to be an awesome writer- this includes any/all or a combination of attention to detail, business or marketing experience/qualifications, hunger to learn and be an all-round nice person.


  • Bid Writer– perhaps you work as a bid writer or in a related field- Marketing, Procurement, copywriting and you are looking for a diverse and continually challenging (in a good way) new role to push you professionally and personally with the opportunity for real career progression.


  • Senior Bid Writer– you have to be a truly awesome bid writer for this role perhaps you have more bid writing experience, you need to be good with clients (in fact you need to be utterly charming), you will be expected to support the more junior team members but must not rest on you laurels- you need to be a learning machine and add to our existing culture of sharing experiences and continuing to push your knowledge to the next level. If you have the skill set and desire you may also be involved in business development activity.

Pay rates are very competitive with real potential for progression. We have a range of benefits such as flexible working hours, you get your birthday off along with generous holiday allowance and a whole lot more.

Make a life, not just a living - Bid and Research Development

The company is in an exciting phase. we have achieved significant year on year growth. We are officially a scale up business- what does this mean? its a big deal. We have had sustained organisational growth of more than 20% year on year for 3 full financial years. only c.9,000 SMEs in the UK are achieving this from 5.7Million companies. We must be doing something right. Also see our last blog post with a summary of 2017

What next?

I could ramble on all day, but I will leave it here. So now it’s your duty to remember how many people hate their job- is it you? maybe a friend? get in touch to find out a little more. We are always happy to have a chat or a cuppa or maybe you just want to apply. Deadline is 19th January with CVs sent to
